Just come across an interesting research paper: -

http://www.springerlink.com/content/950378420610655r/

Looks like starchy food consumption increases the chances of reflux oesophagitis and high fibre intake is associated with reduced risk of Barretts and adenocarcinoma.

Well that's useful to know........ if there's any of us left still eating white bread and cakes!!!!
 
Edit:  I linked your url for you.  :)

I do.  I am sure that there are others that can tolerate white bread and cakes as each of us have different things that trigger our GERD. The foods that cause acid reflux may vary from person to person.
 
A good acid reflux diet is not just about knowing what food to avoid for acid reflux disease, or the right food to eat for acid reflux, but also how much to eat for every meal. Acid reflux can happen after a heavy meal. Thus, a good acid reflux food plan is to eat less for each meal and have more meals instead.
 
Just my 2 cents worth for this evening.

It's all personal yes, tho the study data is of interest for those who want to reduce cancer risk. But one man's meat . .

For me after a big meal (main meal not a banquet!) is when I feel best. It's drinks that escape back up, whether it's water or anything else, whether with food or without, it's always the drink I can sense at the back of my throat . . Ho hum.
